Area 10 Hires it's first full time staff member!

Me-  I'm full time now!  Woo-hoo!  I couldn't be happier.  Starbucks was a great 2 1/2 year journey.  I look at it as the coffee break of my adult life.   I made many friends there and have some great memories.  

The time has come now, for me to do something audacious-launch a church.  This is the craziest best thing I've ever been a part of.  I've been on the job all of one day now and I'm loving it.  

People ask me, "What will you do now with your time?"  The answer is, there is 1000 point checklist I have to slog through to get ready to launch this church on September 21st.  We have TONS to do.  Here are a few things I'm working on:

1)  Fundraising-  I'm talking to anyone who will listen about the church plant!  If your church wants to partner with us to launch this thing, let me know.  If you grandma wants to partner with us, I will come to her house and bring her tea, and give the pitch.  If you have money in your sofa cushions that you want to give to the project, that will be great too.

2)  Facilities-  I am VERY close to announcing something big about this.  Stay tuned for more info.  Area 10 needs a home in the city and I'm searching for it.

3)  Core Group-  The revolution needs some volunteers.  Who wants to join Area 10 to get this movement launched in the city of Richmond?  MWM  ISO anyone for God sized dreaming, fun, and long walks on the beach.  (OK there is no beach here...but a brother can dream can't he?)  If you live in Richmond, and want to love the city until it becomes a more beautiful place, contact me.

That's just a start.  I'll also be a more consistent blogger now, so look for some more updates.
